Some folks apparently have too much time on their hands over at Republican Mitt Romney‘s presidential campaign office.

The Politico’s Jonathan Martin, who tracks the GOP White House contenders, noted earlier this week that the Romney team had been keeping tabs of all the releases issued by the Democratic National Committee since the ’08 race began in earnest. At first blush, that would seem quite the onerous task. But, as it turned out, the aides couldn’t have been more thrilled with what they found.

Here’s the scoop: Romney easily leads the pack as the prime target of DNC attacks. The candidate’s staff even provided charts!

Lest you think the DNC was asleep at the switch, it responded with yet another swipe at Romney. In this case, the group let none other than Carly Simon do the talking (actually, singing -- you can check a performance of her signature tune here).
